I will take a wild shot here and say you must be young if you can only go back as far as Bush Jr to find a president to also complain about their
actions. I noticed you left out Nam as wars we weren't gave the real reason we were in them. Also because you think no one in America cares how we
look to other countries. There are some of us old timers left in this country. We do care.
Believe it or not many countries look at us as a role model. They want to be like us. Over the years I have wondered if they see us as we really
are over here. They fight for rights we watch as ours are taken away. Yet we want to force our way of thinking on these countries. We wanted a
statement from our president during the recent riots in Iran. They wanted a statement from us also. Perhaps we should care a bit more how we are
viewed by other countries.
As for presidents they are just puppets. They do as they are told. Dems and Republicans is there really two parties or do they just want us to
believe it? I really wonder. If I knew someone like Obama was running for president McCain would of not been my choice to run against him. I
don't know McCain personally but it was like having the Mister Rogers show compete with girls gone wild. Mister Rogers just don't have what it
takes to draw a crowd.
You think people hate Obama for his color or his name. We'll there's an old saying don't hate the person but you can hate his words and his
actions. Right now we live in a country where people are wondering how they are going to pay their bills because their jobs just aren't there
anymore. Yet they spend our tax dollars like water for the date and the shopping trip. They're trying to pass a health care bill that says if your
old and sick your not worth treatment. Are your parents worth the cost? Or your grandparents?
Guess what even us white people get asked for I.D. when we lock ourselves out and a cop happens to come along. Perhaps we should just be glad they do
because sometime it might just not be that persons house or car they are trying to get into. Obama's words might not of been racist but he jumped on
the race bandwagon without knowing all the facts. I would think a president no matter what color he is should know better than that. He should
atleast be a quick enough thinker to know when to keep his mouth shut and side step the question. A simple "I'm sorry but I don't know all the
facts yet so I can't comment" would of done good. Kind of like the statement " thats above my pay grade" to some questions seems to work well.
What have I learned from his teaching experience? If your white you must be racist according to our president. I guess he just doesn't know the
right white people.
By the way I was out protesting and carrying signs against Baby Bushes war did you?
